Nishiki Market(錦市場, Nishiki Ichiba) was in fact our last minute decision that we made after our visit to Shiga. We had this as a backup in case we left Shiga early. Off we went to Nishiki Market…
It’s packed! The market closes at 6pm. If you like this type of place, I would recommend you to stay here for at least 4 hours! We left when it was almost closing time and it started to rain.
So much to see here. The sight and sound can be pretty interesting. There’s also plenty of food samples to try. It’s really a foodie heaven and the place is very instagrammable.
You can find all things matcha hahahaha… Spoil for choices!
Our tea break… The sashimi was great! So satisfying!
We just wandered around and came across Nishiki-Tenmangu Shrine. Many people in there. Really love how the lanterns lighted up the place.
I’m glad that we visited this market because this is the one and only market that we managed to visit during our trip. Do check out my day 5 travel vlog here if you want to experience the sight and sound of the place:
